Engines of the tug 'Clyde' at Renfrew
On Ferry Green, adjacent to the Renfrew-Yoker Ferry Terminal, but the associated plaque NS5168 : The engines of the tug 'Clyde' gives no useful information about them. The tug was propelled by paddles, and worked on the Clyde for 61 years until it was replaced by a screw-driven steam tug in 1912.
